This article suxx[edit]

It mostly goes over the binary relations material oven and over. Some1Redirects4You (talk) 18:35, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Theory of relations[edit]

There isn't much theory in the Theory of relations wiki article. Just a reiteration of what's here plus a few more definitions. A merge seems in order. Some1Redirects4You (talk) 18:43, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

After removing the seemingly WP:OR parts from the "theory" article there wasn't much of substance left in it so I've effected the merge as a redirect. If someone finds some reliable sources (not crowdsourced math wikis) for the material, feel free to restore either here or in its own article if deemed substantive enough.

About this part: "any set (such as the collection of Nobel laureates) can be viewed as a collection of individuals having some property (such as that of having been awarded the Nobel prize)"

Any set is a subset. (That is why there is no set of all sets.) Therefore a unary relation assigns (selects the members of) a subset, not a set just from empty nothing. (talk) 16:47, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
